It's a separate piece that bolts to the frame horns behind the bumper, replace it.

Personally I would assume and be a little concerned that depending on how its bent or bad, it may indicate whether you bent the frame or a portion of it as well.

If it is on a 1998+ truck, it is welded on, not bolted.

Depending on the damage and if the frame is salvageable, it may be best to weld a new plate on.
